Animals

Animals are multicellular organisms in the taxonomical kingdom Animalia. Zoology, the study of animals, defines animals using several characteristics: they generally reproduce sexually, consume organic material, are capable of movement and include a blastula stage during embryonic development. Use Wolfram|Alpha to explore the diversity of animals from simple organisms, like jellyfish and worms, to highly complex and large organisms that are wild, like giraffes, or domesticated, like cows.
